Barcelona host Real Madrid on Thursday 23rd August, 2012, with kickoff at 21:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.

You aren’t going to get many bigger games than this in the season ahead, and the chance to see what Tito Vilanova will do with the squad Pep left is fairly mouth-watering. Last year the main weakness for Barcelona was to be found in the pace of their defence, and while Alex Song and Jordi Alba will certainly add to the physical and athletic presence, the central region still looks a bit ponderous.

Of course, the world will be focussing on two attackers this evening, and Lionel Messi’s battle with Cristiano Ronaldo is one for the ages. This is a must-see game.
